Selena: After my parents separated my mom actually got her own apartment and I moved in with her.
Selena’s Mom: I decided to go to college. I would get up at 6 in the morning, get her ready for school, drop her off then from there I would go to school and we did that everyday. And so the part that I regret then was I feel like I lost a year because it was so much going and going and going - I don’t wanna cry - but that was a tough year.
Selena: I remember my mom would run out of gas all the time and we’d sit there and we’d have to like go through the car and get like quarters to help her get gas because she never liked to ask my grandparents for money. And I remember having a lot of macaroni and cheese but my mom never made it seem like it was a big deal. She was really strong around me.
Selena’s Mom: Yeah we may have ran out of gas, we did have to walk to the dollar store to get dollar spaghetti so we always had food but if I knew she wanted to go to a concert I would save up for it so you do the best you can with what you’re given.
Selena: I mean having me at 16 had to have been a big responsibility. My mom gave up everything for me and had like three jobs, supported me, sacrificed her life for me.
